I am trying to figure out why I have shortness of breath, chest tightness and bad spirometry results (last one was 45%). My pulmonologists ordered more tests to rule out pulmonary hypertension and heart disease.
I was looking at imaging I had done last year for the same problems, and my echocardiogram says, "Unable to detect peak tricuspid regurgitation velocity for pulmonary artery systolic pressure calculation."
Why couldn't they do that? I'm sure the doctor will want to know this information, since he is primarily concerned with ruling out PH.
